Hi,

I'm developing Delphi apps using a 800*600 resolution. My application look rather 'funny' with users using another,lower,resolution. What is the best way of handling this problem? Do I have to check the system information or is there another way?

Thanks

To make the font look perfect use this....Find the Form's property Fonts -> Pitch and set it to fpVariable;

If you want the buttons and all the stuff in the form to get the right resolution use ScaleBy() function of the form and set AutoSize of the form to false.....
